We often see patients in the absence of one tooth. Moreover, the patient is firmly convinced that there is nothing wrong, especially since doctor from another clinic said - nothing else to do. The patient calms down, gradually adapting to chewing food on the other side, thereby overloading the teeth and joints.
Let's see what changes occur and what it threatens. Nature abhors a vacuum. And as soon as there is a defect - includes
What is the mechanism?
Teeth border with defect experiencing increased stress, lose support from the removed tooth. Consequently, changing their status, functionality changes and ligamentous apparatus of the tooth.
Moving teeth leads to deformation, which significantly complicates the selection and conduct of orthopedic treatment.
Consider an example.
When you remove the lower first molar is tooth-alveolar lengthening
antagonist (first molars of the upper jaw). It occurs to the moment when the antagonist not meet with the mucosa of the opposite jaw, where it forms a depression and ulcer. Such deformation causes the breakdown of the mandible, and as a result - in violation joint overload teeth. The question is about the removal of a tooth.
The second lower molar due to overload gradually leans forward. In place of the slope plaque accumulates, which leads to odor, gum disease, its bleeding, formation of bone pocket. This leads to tooth mobility and subsequent loss.
As you can see, the loss of even a single tooth can lead to the following consequences:
Pay attention to these defects and did not tighten the visit to the dentist.
